New Jersey Personal Injury Lawyers Strategically Fight to Protect Accident Victims’ Rights in Hudson County
After an accident, it can be important to act swiftly in order to protect your right to compensation for your injuries. Preserving evidence is often key to maximizing available compensation—although it is equally important to refrain from accepting an initial lowball settlement offer from the insurance company. The role of a personal injury lawyer in these cases is to protect your rights and fight to ensure you are fairly compensated for your injuries. Even a case that initially seems cut-and-dried may present unique complications that an experienced Courtlaw personal injury lawyer can help you navigate in order to get the best results possible.

Whether you were injured in a motor vehicle accident, a bicycle accident or in a slip and fall accident at the shopping mall, our dedicated Hudson County personal injury lawyers are here to fight for your right to full compensation for those injuries.
What is a Hudson County Personal Injury Lawsuit?
A personal injury lawsuit is a mechanism for obtaining financial compensation from the party whose negligent actions caused an accident in which you were injured. Personal injury law applies broadly so that it is the primary means for recovering compensation in a wide variety of accident cases, including:
- Slip and fall accidents
- Car accidents
- Accidents involving underinsured or uninsured motorists
- Limo accidents
- Uber and Lyft accidents
- Bus accidents
- Truck accidents
- Construction site accidents
- Workplace accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Pedestrian or bicycle accidents
- Dog bites
- And more
While a lawsuit is what a personal injury case is usually called, it is frequently unnecessary to actually go to court to resolve your personal injury claim. Only the most severe and hotly contested personal injury cases wind up before a jury, while most other personal injury cases are resolved through pretrial negotiations or via the insurance settlement process based upon information that we obtain in our investigation of your case.
At CourtLaw, our attorneys handle all types of personal injury cases, including those that result in catastrophic injuries or wrongful death. We have successfully helped clients recover compensation in cases resulting in:
- Paralysis, whether total or partial
- Brain injuries
- Severe burns
- Amputations or loss of limbs
- Birth injuries
- Broken bones
- Spinal cord injuries
- And more

Frequently Asked Questions About Personal Injury Claims in Hudson County, NJ
FAQ: How much time do I have to decide whether to file a personal injury lawsuit in Hudson County?
Generally, the statute of limitations for filing a personal injury lawsuit is two years from the date your accident occurred. However, exceptions do exist. Medical malpractice claims are subject to a different set of rules, and if you were injured as a minor, you may also have additional time to file a lawsuit. Despite these time limits, it is usually advisable to begin formulating your case as soon as possible after the accident, when the evidence is at its freshest.
FAQ: What difference does it make whether I choose to pursue compensation via an insurance claim or through the personal injury lawsuit process?
Insurance claims and personal injury lawsuits are two facets of any personal injury case. Essentially, we first attempt to recover all available compensation through claims with the applicable insurance companies. In some cases, that amount will be fair and sufficient to cover the expenses related to your injuries—but in other cases, the available insurance will be insufficient, or the insurance carrier could deny the claim outright for any number of reasons. In these cases, we resort to a personal injury lawsuit in order to obtain compensation that is fair and that fully accounts for the injuries you have suffered.
